The value of pipe #628 is 40 points.
Rick Osborn has been collecting the pipe and its cousins for several years but decided to abandon the project. He and I have done a lot of trading, selling, buying, discussing, and giving back and forth. As a most generous gesture, he gave me this pipe and four others before selling off his collection on eBay. A great guy and a brilliant man; I shall miss our close connection. This pipe is a far better example of the shape/color than the one previously the exemplar so it joins the collection and the other becomes one of the Pipes for Trade. Two weeks later I got a NIB example of the shape/color so this one has now joined the Pipes for Sale page.
